Atlanta, Georgia – March 10, 2011
Vocalocity, the leading cloud-based phone service for small business, today announces a more comprehensive reseller program for solution providers and channel partners. The program was designed to enable partners to grow their consultative business and build new revenue opportunities. A new integration toolkit gives developers and resellers an easy way to customizing applications they can monetize.
Vocalocity is turning to solution providers and partners — the trusted advisors to thousands of small businesses — to help their customers get the most out of current and future enhancements in cloud based communications services.
“We are counting on our channel partners to help us sustain our rapid year-over-year growth,” says Wain Kellum, CEO of Vocalocity. “The new program allows tremendous flexibility from partners who simply send us leads, or those that actually manage sales cycles, and up to ones creating sophisticated plug-ins adding tremendous value to our core service offering.”
Since 2005, Vocalocity has continued to grow at an accelerated rate, recently making Inc. Magazine’s “Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies” based upon its investment in technology, quality and customer service.
According to Vocalocity partner James Snodgrass at Phoenix PC Networking, the enhancements compliment an already successful offering. “Vocalocity’s program is the most lucrative out there – margins have been outrageously good,” says Snodgrass. “We are a computer company and we do the whole hosted thing. Vocalocity is the most flawless.”
Vocalocity officials say the program enhancements represent a ten-fold increase in their commitment to the channel with that investment trajectory expected next year too.
“As small businesses learn more about cloud computing and look for innovative ways to increase their productivity and reduce costs, they’ll turn to existing relationships for advice,” says Steve Byrd, VP of business development for Vocalocity. “We took great care in retooling our partner program so many different types of companies can now take advantage. It is not another ‘One size fits all’ approach which is prevalent in our industry. Our partners get to make decisions on where they’d like to invest in order to build their business with Vocalocity.”
The reseller program now includes:
* Cooperative Marketing and Sales Programs
* Extensive sales training,
* Technical certification training for professional services and support
* Technology and tools for acquiring customers, provisioning end users, management consoles, reporting and advanced application integration
* Access to Vocalocity Technical resources via the Vocalocity Partner Portal
